The African-German Research Network provides a platform for scholars and practitioners from Africa, Europe and other parts of the world to research and work together on issues of international and transnational criminal justice. The Network goes back to the South African-German Centre for Transnational Criminal Justice. Today, it has around 150 members, most of whom are Alumnae and Alumni of the Centre.
Since its establishment in 2019, the Network has been pioneering transcontinental exchange and scholarship through a range of activities. Core research areas of the Network are international criminal law, transnational criminal law, transitional justice, and colonial legacies and criminal law.
